  • QUESTION FROM CURRANT: Do the zero commissions for options also extend to vol products like VIX and spikes?
  • QUESTION FROM ELI: Does T3 have any models it can share depicting how viking future would look right now vs. traditional VIX futures term structure?
  • QUESTION FROM LAWRENCE T.:  Lots of talk in energy space about how institutional hedging has shifted from back months to front calendar year for producers.
